The new track sees Destroy Boys vocalist and guitarist Alexa Roditis flick between English and Spanish-speaking vocals.

It follows the recent release of minute-and-a-half tune ‘Beg For The Torture’. 

Have a listen to ‘Shadow (I’m Breaking Down)’ below.

Speaking about the new track and its meaning, Roditis has said: 

“‘Shadow…’ is about compassionately confronting the parts of yourself that you don’t like, or do like but might be toxic. 

“It’s an introspective piece, taking notes from various spiritual beliefs and psychological research.”

Today’s release comes at a heady time on the road for Destroy Boys, who are currently headlining a number of shows in North America, having just wrapped up a stint with blink-182 and Turnstile Stateside.

They also made appearances at Coachella and Slam Dunk festivals earlier this year, as well as selling out headline shows across the UK and Germany.
